Funny; I had two Netgear 8-port 10/100 switches I'd been running for
years, and they both just suddenly died. One about four or five months
ago, and the other just a couple weeks ago. 

I don't remember exactly when I bought them, and I certainly don't
have receipts for them. I was unaware there was a lifetime warranty.
Where would I go to ask about getting them replaced?
